Athlete of the Week Candidates

Dudes, it was a bit tougher collecting the candidates this week, as my ESPN front page appeared to be dominated by horse news. But, before we euthanize this past week, let's trot out the entries to the gate:

1) Big Bad Bales: in 2 wins, Allison averaged 16 points, 10 boards and 5 blocks against FSU and VaTech to help her team hang on to the No. 1 ranking.

2) Dirk: The Big German averaged 31 points and 10.3 rebounds in leading the Mavs to a 2-1 week.

3) T-Mac: In leading his team to a 3-0 week, including a road win at San Antonio, the oft-injured megastar scored 29.7 points per game while shooting at an absurd 33-of-54 clip from the floor.

4) The Dreidel: The Dreidel didn't do much this week, except for rifling a picture-perfect pass to Dave McClure for the game winning lay-up at the buzzer to secure a home win against Clemson.

As usual, those who care can vote, my vote goes to Tracy McGrady

I like your unbiased descriptions, and the fact you pick Nowitzki in one of the rare weeks in their 22-2 stretch where the Mavs actually lost. I'm 100% behind Barbaro -- the other candidates had normal weeks.
